Trading Standards Law

Trading standards officers act on behalf of consumers and business.  Some of these laws and regulations are complex and obscure and can result in severe penalties.


They advise on and enforce laws that govern the way we buy, sell, rent and hire goods and services.


Trading standards officers (TSO's) work for local councils advising on consumer law, investigating complaints and, if all else fails, prosecuting traders who break the law.


These laws cover a wide area, which includes:

  • counterfeit goods
  • product labelling
  • weights and measures
  • under-age sales
  • animal welfare
  • product safety
  • food safety
  • consumercredit and contact terms
  • advertising practices
  • licensing

In many cases there are defences and a major part of this is called "due diligence"  That is, showing you have a system to prevent the offence and that a system is put in place to ensure this is happening.
